Not only did Carlos Cisneros save Chivas from a Clásico Tapatío defeat to Atlas on Saturday night, but his goal finally broke the Flock’s Apertura 2022 scoring drought at home.

Cisneros struck in the 84th minute at the Estadio Akron to allow the home crowd celebrate seeing their first goal in five league games this season at the Guadalajara venue.

However, the lateness of the equaliser could not prevent Los Rojiblancos from becoming just the fourth team to go over 400 minutes without hitting the net at home at the start of a campaign.

According to TUDN’s Ricardo Salazar, only Atlas and Querétaro have managed to frustrate their fanbases for longer in this respect.

Manager Ricardo Cadena will be hoping that his right-back’s welcome intervention will prove a watershed moment in what has been a troubled season to date.

Reports from Mexico suggest that rescuing a 1-1 draw will keep the under-fire boss in the hot seat at least until Friday’s clash with Necaxa.
